Pet Health by Dr. Fran Good, DVM: Monthly Flea Death Products - The Saga of Monthly Flea Death continues. After the innovation of Program©, the once a month pill that short-circuited the reproductive wiring of the household flea, the veterinary community was reeling. We'd all wished for something like that to simplify the dreaded Flea Talk we all had to give to our clients, fifteen times a day. The one I'm giving you now.

But we'd always laugh and say 'Dream on'.

When lufenuron, the active ingredient of Program®, hit the market, it sparked a wave of new flea products, that's still continuing today. While lufenuron couldn't help our allergic animals, Defend was about to fix that. Since the flea had to bite the animal in order to ingest the lufenuron, our allergic animals, who were allergic to the flea's saliva, were left out in the cold this time. But the buying frenzy when Program® was first released made it clear that pet owners really liked the once-a-month idea. And Novertis upped the ante a tad, by coming out with injectable lufenuron, that only has to be given once every three months. - Click here to read more...
